François Duquesnoy’s ongoing project explores an inexpensive, sustainable way of moving house. Surveying his new environment one time after moving, he noticed the amount of discarded material everywhere. He decided to set himself a limit of one week to gather waste materials and use them to create new furniture. His one-week limit demanded a hands-on approach and a focus on creating rather than designing. So far he has made three series in three cities, painting each interior in one colour to focus on the result and the potential of the materials rather than the materials themselves.
